Blue Star Fern

Blue Star Fern


The Blue Star Fern (Phlebodium aureum), named after the delicate blue hue to its foliage, has become increasingly popular due to its easy-going nature. They grow relatively slowly when indoors, and will only ever grow to about 40cm.

Light: Indirect sunlight is best for the Blue Star Fern. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can scorch the leaves. Whilst the Blue Star Fern can adapt to lower light conditions, a moderately bright room would be best.

Watering: Water your Blue Star Fern about once a week. Please allow top of soil to dry before watering to prevent root rot.

Soil: Well-draining soil is essential for a happy Blue Star Fern. Ideal potting mixture will be one part perlite/coarse potting sand, one part peat-free compost.

Temperature: They will be happy at temperatures between of 14°c and 27°c.

Repotting: The Blue Star Fern can be sensitive to repotting, so only repot once they become root-bound.
